It isn't the distro that determines if your card will be capable of working.

You want to figure out what chipset it has by doing `lspci` and finding the chipset. After that google the chipset.

Personally, I recommend the RT25xx chipsets because they seem work well even in 64-bit. Make sure you have wireless-tools and the like installed because you'll need them in conjuction with ifconfig.
